Two Reflective Cam Straps

Two Reflective Cam Straps

Cam straps stacked

Bungies have their place, but for serious cargo hauling cams straps are indispensable – we use these regularly to deliver 70+ lb  boxes to our shipping carrier.

The harder you pull, the harder the steel buckle bites into the strap. You can tension it as little or as much as you want, giving you the peace of mind that  your load isn’t going to shift unpredicatably. It holds tension with amazing strength. Check out the “don’t try this in your home forest” moment below!

Cam straps are awesome problem solvers.

When using a cam strap, try to find the Shortest Path around the object you’re securing. A diagonal path may shift or spin your load or loosen along the way. See below.

Cam straps are great for gusto. Note one in action below as crew member Pastana ropes a stray goat at our 2010 Earth Day concert at USF.

In order to use these straps most effectively, you need to keep them coiled neatly, ready for use, not jumbled up in your bag!

See how to coil a cam strap in this video:

Silver heavy duty nylon strapping with a reflective badge for night time visibility and steel cam buckle made to last. Available in 1 meter for small loads or 3 meters for big stuff.

V3 Mundo Cargo Bike

May 3, 2011Posted by in Cargo, Products, V3 Mundo Cargo Bike, V3 Mundo Cargo Bike Available Products | Comments Off on V3 Mundo Cargo Bike

V3 Mundo Cargo Bike
Get that ‘useful’ feeling.

The Mundo is a long-wheelbase bike with a stout welded cargo rack. Its one-piece frame fits a wide variety of riders, from approximately 5′ to over 6′. The slack seat angle and upright bars put you in a relaxed, upright position in traffic.

The steel chassis and Side Loader racks offer a unique loading experience. Pass a steel-buckled cam strap through the four strap guides, or anywhere else through the frame, and you access the core strength. Carrying rigid shapes like amps, speakers, crates, boxes, is extremely surefooted. No appreciable frame flex even for 100-200 pound loads. (The Mundo is rated to 450lbs). Use the threaded customization points to mount your custom project.

All v3 Mundos come with a one-size-fits-many frame, Shimano drivetrain, sealed bearing wheelset, wide side kickstand, legendary stiff ride quality. Adjustable stem. Fenders. Recycle plastic top deck. Most customers will also want to pick up one or two GoGetter bags, and some cam straps.

Assembly involves installing the Side Loader cargo rack, the top deck, the front wheel and the pedals, straightening handlebars, and giving the bike a full tune up. Rock the Bike can also assist you in assembling your cargo bike.

The long wheelbase and predictable handling make the Mundo an ideal bike for towing a trailer. Above: getting gear home from a Rock The Bike event on the Biker Bar.

The Mundo’s designers have spec’ed quality wheels, including a 48-spoke sealed-bearing rear wheel with oversized axle. When you start carrying passengers and heavy loads on a long-wheelbase bicycle, you’ll quickly come to appreciate the value of a strong rear wheel. The Mundo comes with oversized semi-slick city tires, providing a stable, smooth ride.

We encourage our customers to shop around and investigate their options for utility bicycles. The Mundo stands out by offering exceptional value, simplicity, and amazing ride quality.
